Yesterday, while Daddy stayed home to make a garden bed, Priya and I went to some local markets with my mum where we picked up two punnets of herbs, baby spinach and cherry tomato seedlings. We planted them after dinner.
We are hoping that Priya will benefit from helping to nurture a small garden. Gardening is a productive way of promoting a healthy lifestyle and a sense of responsibility. It is also a great way to learn about science, cause and effect, botany and nutrition, all while having fun. Perhaps I will finally be able to convince her to try tomato once the fruit starts to grow.
